Wonderfully Made: Finding Body Positivity
and Creating Healthy Relationships
How can we be created perfectly in God’s image, but be so different from one another? What should our relationship with God and others look like? April's NextGen Academy will focus on how God created you and desires a relationship with you. We will explore how we perceive and love ourselves and others, and discuss ways to maintain healthy relationships.

The Missouri Conference of the United Methodist Church has identified missional leaders as their essential priority. Missional leaders are intentionally growing in Christ in order to serve with vision and hope for the Christian community. A disciple becomes a missional leader as they identify others, who identify others, who practice following Christ. Missional leaders are freed to lead in the context of their community, local church and beyond.

One year ago Next Generation Ministries created the NextGen Academy to be an environment for students and young adults to discover and grow in their faith alongside friends and mentors during quarterly events. Students will explore spiritual gifts, leadership development, and service and mission. This exciting, free program enables students ages 13-18 from across the state to grow in their faith amongst a community of curious Christians just like you!
